mccain who would have been arrested for assaulting secretary of state hillary clinton. and third, i kept thinking about what a glorious time for the pentagon to announce it was lifting the ban on women in combat because if there was any proof that women are ready for combat, it was watching hillary clinton. in front of those senators yesterday. i thought she was magnificent! andself things about this hearing. but the first one we gotta say again, it's disgusting what the republicans have been doing. remember mitt romney started this, in the middle of the campaign, when we have a terrorist attack against the united states. it was just like 9-11 in the sense this was american soil, i don't care, benghazi is in libya but it is american soil. american consulate. terrorists attacked us. what do we do after 9-11, we all pulled together and said we're going to get those s.o.b.s. what did the republican party do after benghazi? we're going to get president obama. we're going to get hillary clinton. we're going to get susan rice. started by mitt romney. picked up by john mccain. ever since t

is the foreign >> reporter: john mccain and kerry forged close bonds over vietnam. both naval officers, mccain was imprisoned. kerry returned to testify 1. his first appearance before this committee. >> how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in vietnam? >> reporter: decades later, they united as senators to resolve p.o.w. issues and normalize relations with vietnam. >> working toward that end with john and witnessing almost daily his exemplary statesmanship is one of the highest privileges i've had here. >> reporter: today, they do have differences. mccain is more willing to arm the rebels in syria. >> i think we ought to tell the syrian people that we're either going to help them or we're not. >> if you have a complete implosion of the state, nobody has clearer definition of how you put those pieces back together. >> reporter: he and others also pressed kerry on benghazi. >> are you willing to work with me or do you basically kind of agree hillary clinton that that's kind of yesterday's news and let's move on? >> well, senator, if you're trying to get some daylight between me and secr
clinton was side by side with senator mccain to introduce kerry as the best choice to follow in her footsteps. >> he's a determined and effective representative of the united states. has been as a senator, will be as secretary. >> and things were cordial enough moments ago. senator mccain was still blasting clinton for her testimony yesterday. >> she really didn't answer any questions, her response to senator johnson about whether there was a spontaneous demonstration or not, saying it didn't matter, it didn't matter how these people died? that was stunning. that was really stunning. of course it matters. >> all right, let's dive right in and say good morning to our thursday political power. mark ginsburg, joi ann reed, ron reagan, and republican strategist susan del percio. it's great to have you all here. as we speak right now, the confirmation hearing of john kerry is taking place. started roughly after 10:00 a.m. and this is a big difference of what we saw yesterday, ironically enough, this is the senate committee that kerry technically still chairs, and he made a joke about tha
if you look at mccain, imagine calling that man at 4:00 in the morning and asking him anything. seriously! ehh? who is this? click. >> get off my lawn. >> mr. president mr. president are you awake? we have an emergency. troops -- there is a nuclear submarine. >> i can't hear you. my goiter got in the way. >> hal: then mitt romney, if you take that picture of him pumping gas on the way to disneyland as a sign of how he handles stress -- >> oh, boy! >> he turns into a hobo. >> hal: hobo producers activate. form of a confused staggering man on the train. let's actually -- this is interesting, too. because while the inauguration was going -- let's go to sean in chicago. sean in chicago is aware of what the republicans were doing. >> oh, that's right. go ahead sean. >> caller: hey, guys. hey, everybody. >> good morning. >> caller: i love you guys. you start my morning before work every day. >> we try. >> caller: i was piggybacking off what you said, hal. how we're not paying attention. we're paying so much attention to what the president's doing. the republicans in the states are really just r
to handle that question and did a very good job of raising that issue. john mccain made a great point today when he said people don't bring rpg's and the weaponry that was used in this attack to spontaneous demonstrati demonstration. it's relevant. here is why it matters. when they put out word this was not a terrorist attack, it was sprung out of a spontaneous uprising, it furthers the narrative al-qaeda was in disarray and that we had, by the elimination of bin laden made this extraordinary reduction in the risk in the area. as it it turns out not only was it not true in libya, but other parts of north africa as well and the fundamental question did the administration really believe that? if they did they badly miscalculated or did they know it was true and for political reasons didn't want it out there. they were eliminating the war on terror and these groups and no longer capable of care i go out attacks against the u.s. and one or the other. either they assess wrong that radical terrorists were not capable of care caring out a for the new mattress models, but sleep train's huge year en
complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch, and he was wearing an orange shirt, and mccain was wearing only aviator glasses. >> stephanie: all right. rush limbaugh. >> it was like a pukefest. it was right out of banana republic. i have never seen gravelling sucking up, butt kissing, hillary clinton's testimony. and she lost her cool at one point. by the way she opened up crying, which is part of the script. >> stephanie: human. oh it's scripted. >> yes. >> it's part of the clinton script. >> don't you guys know anything yet? part of the skriment was her illness and concussion and when that got proved wrong, it had to be her emotions are part of the script. >> stephanie: karl you are good when you can fake a blood clot you are a very accomplishes actress, app
by u.s. intelligence officials. just don't tell that to senator john mccain. he may have to switch his anger button to off. >> the american people deserve to know answers and they certainly don't deserve false answers. the answers given to the american people on september 15th by the ambassador of the united nations were false. >> john: that's mccain still trying to win the respect of his own party. they were even more incensed over rice's alleged efforts to mislead the american public during an election year, no less to no apparent logical reason. >> again, we were misled there was supposedly protest and then something sprang out of that. an all the sprang out of that. that was easily ascertainable. that was not the fact and the american people could have known that for days. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans. whether it was because of a protest or because guys out for a walk and they decided to go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent from ever happeni
branches. apparently their feelings were hurt. senator mccain says quote, i would have liked to have seen some more outreach. senator thune says he wasn't doing the kind of outreach he needs to do. senator collins says i had hoped his speech would be a little less partisan. senator portman says he missed an opportunity to talk about where we can find common ground. common ground, senator? republicans spent four years not compromising. and not wanting to be on any ground. common or not. with this president. and now they accuse him of not compromising? president obama has learned the lessons of four years of power politics and how to make republicans ied logs sit up and listen. >> medicare and medicaid and social security. these do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> you got that, tea partiers? the president went right after the cynical romney/ryan republican view of the world. makers versus takers. calling out the extremists who refuse to listen to the american people. >> we cann
from israel and from afghanistan, john mccain and kelly ayotte and other senators who just returned from visiting in egypt with morsi to discuss these very issues. the people of egypt and morsi in particular know that continuing a relationship with israel is key to u.s. foreign aid, that there needs to be a strong military commitment in israel specifically to protect the sinai because we know that weapons are being shipped up through the sinai to gaza to hamas. so, this is, as you say, a continuation of a previous agreement, it is going to continue and even the people of israel agree it's important to make sure that the egyptian military is strong, but egypt needs to continue its commitment to the camp david accord. >> sean: but senator johnson, the egyptian military now, some of the key leaders that we thought were more moderate, they're gone. morsi has gotten rid of them and now give them f-16 fighter jets and tanks, i've got to be honest, sometimes i wonder, this guy was a former terrorist in the muslim brotherhood. help me out, how does this-- how does this strategically work fo
. >> john is the right choice. and i urge his speedy confirmation. >> it's john john mccain so nice. much better reception than clinton herds got yesterday during the testimony of the bengahzi attacks. but it wasn't all warm and fuzzy. senator rob johnson who went after hillary clinton tried to get kerry to contradict hillary clinton's testimony. but he did not take the bait. take a listen. >> senator, if you're trying to get some daylight between me and secretary of state hillary clinton, that's not going to happen today on that score. >> jennifer: when it became clear that he could not get him to turn on hillary clinton he tried to get john kerry to criticize the bengahzi situation, and then he turned it around and made senator johnson look foolish. >> you worked with me then. i'm going on so we can get that behind us so we can find out what happened, then we can move onioned that. can you make that commitment to me. >> senator, in all fairness i think we do know what happened. i think that it is very clear clear--were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> well, there was a brie
to salter with the mccain campaign in 2008. and i said, why did you guys go the path you did? mark salter? i said, why don't you go ahead and push a bill where somebody worked here for five years. they could go back to mexico. they could apply. and they could come and have legal status. why didn't you go that route? americans would have supported that. he laughed. he said, because the afl-cio opposed it. and the one senator that was constantly at the forefront of opposing that form of immigration reform was a senator from illinois named barack obama. he carried their water on blocking this pathway to citizenship when he was in the senate. the afl-cio put out a press release yesterday talking about the importance of not compromising on citizenship. so the unions themselves -- there are a lot of cross-currents here. the unions themselves don't want an influx of new workers in america, do they? >> no, they don't. that's one of the reasons this organizing for action, jim messina's full-time job is trying to get the union's in line, but it's going to be hard. it's hard on the democratic side. we'

, september 11. and then finally, senator mccain stressed why wasn't there some u.s. military power available to come to the rescue of the people who were trapped in the embassy annex so that people wouldn't have ended up dying on the roof essentially unable to protect themselves against the mortar fire they were taking. and you could see, he's still angry about it. >> rose: the other thing he considered unacceptable was her response with senator johnson when she said, "what difference does it make?" >> i thought that was an especially poignant response from secretary clinton. and it reflected an uncertainty to this day, i'm told among intelligence officers who have reviewed the evidence they have of what happened that night, believing it or not, they still don't know precisely how that attack came to happen. they know there were terrorists who were associated with al qaeda, were part of the group. they know there were others who kind of wandered into the scene. and when secretary clinton said, "what difference does it make exactly how it came together, let's find it and punish them." she was
to be useful an i have a lot of respect for carl levin, lamar alexander, chuck schumer, john mccain, ben cardin, the people that worked on this along with the leaders so i wouldn't judge it to be a failed -- failure just yet. >> i want to pull out the lens a little bit. we have an asymmetrical problem and we have the senate and congress, as well. do you agree with that conception? >> no. i absolutely agree with that conception. and it's in the epilogue of my book. i think norm and tom are right that it's the movement of the republicans to the right, and frankly, i believe that the obstruction strategy followed by the senate republicans for the last four years and particularly during the national economic crisis was absolutely the wrong thing for the country. fortunately, i think it turned out to be the wrong thing for them, as well. >> ira, while we're dishing out advice for republicans, let's look at senate democrats for a second. they haven't passed a budget since 2009 and "the washington post" has a piece out right now sort of trying to address why that may be. an answer they give is a budge
as there is also opposition. remember, some senators, like senator mccain, think this is the right thing to do. i'm told in talking to officials here that president obama believes this is the right thing to do. a number of his advisers believe this is the right thing to do. this is not something that's going to be implemented overnight, of course. there's going to be a lot of thought put into what women are serving in what positions, but this is something that president obama believed certainly in consultation with his defense team was the way to move forward. >> nbc's kristin welker, thank you, kristin. >>> next, why some on president obama's team had second thoughts on using this. stay with us. ♪ america, america god shed his grace on thee ♪ [ construction sounds ] ♪ [ watch ticking ] [ engine revs ] come in. ♪ got the coffee. that was fast. we're outta here. ♪ [ engine revs ] ♪ this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may h
community? >> well, remember, president bush worked in a bipartisan fashion, john mccain, republican. ted kennedy, the lead sponsor, a democrat, president bush working in concerts 3 years. i would remind you, president obsmga was one of the people in the senate who voted to kill that bipartisan immigration reform, voting for every killer amendment offered up by the labor union. there is an element in the republican party, many of us believing that the issue must be settled. but the question's going to be, will the president work in a bipartisan fashion on this? or will he attempt to use it for partisan gain as he has the last four years? he could have taken this issue off the table in 2009 or 2010. but it wasn't apparently important enough for him to deal with. how will he approach the issue? bipartisan or confrontation? >> on the flip side, joe ogun control, there doesn't seem to be a lot of indication that the president has reached out to the other side on this issue. in fact, all indications are there is going to be this effort to go grassroots and really put the pressure on from the o

, what are we going to do? the tone was pretty much set by arizona senator john mccain. >> should he be confirmed, and i'm confident he will be, i'm sure we will have our disagreements which i know neither of us will hesitate to bring to the other's attention. but i know he will acquit himself in that office with distinction and use his many talents and his indefatigable persistence to advance our country's interests. and i commend his nominationing to you -- his nomination to you without reservation. >> reporter: at this point senators seem to think that john kerry will be our next secretary of state. he is not believed to be one of the more controversial nominations, and so perhaps they will save their fight for a more controversial pick. uma? uma: looks like smooth sailing for the senator. thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you. jon: well, our military faces a major transformation. the pentagonner shoe -- issuing a statement officially lifting a ban against women fighting on the front lines. right now we are waiting to hear from defense secretary panetta and the chairman of t
